Bascand Estate was established in 1998 and owns vineyards in premium growing regions to produce award winning wines. From its Marlborough estate, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir grapes are grown, while from its North Canterbury estate in Waipara, outstanding Riesling and Pinot Noir grapes are grown. Bascand wines are crafted by winemaker Scott Berry, who has won numerous medals and awards for his wines. The most recent being the only Bragato gold presented for a Riesling in 2007. "Premium quality is our guiding force" says Scott. "Selecting grapes from regions most suited to their individual qualities gives me the ability to craft outstanding wines for people to enjoy."
Limes, apples, lemons and feijoas on the nose, with subtle elderflower and floral hints. Upfront sweet entry to the palate challenged by ripe thenolics and acid. Great length, refreshing and enticing.
